Focus Marine provides commercial marine services, logistics, and support to filming and events on, near and underwater.

From our base in London, we regularly operate on the River Thames – one of Europe’s busiest waterways – and have a proven track record of planning and delivering dynamic operations in challenging marine environments. From camera boats to safety kayakers, swift water operations to historic sailing ships, we have extensive experience coordinating and operating a wide variety of marine craft, with a project portfolio spanning film and television productions, outside broadcast, and live events.

Film and TV

We work extensively with production companies to support filming operations on the water.
We speak your language!


Planning & Consultancy

Bringing a marine advisor on board can help you navigate tidal/access constraints, safety requirements and ensure your day runs smoothly no matter where you’re shooting.


Water safety

If you’re shooting on/near the water, having a dedicated water safety team on standby can help to ensure the working environment remains safe and controlled. This might range from a single safety advisor/lifeguard, to coordinated rescue boats or in-water safety personnel for operations on/below the waterline.

Marine locations

Whether you're headed to the open sea, a tidal estuary, beach, river, lake, pond, canal or inland waterway; every marine location brings its own unique challenges.


Our team

Drawing from backgrounds in RNLI and RYA training, ocean yacht racing, and civilian search & rescue operations, we can tailor a marine safety and support package to provide you with a safe working system to function effectively in marine environments. We pull together teams with swift water rescue, advanced powerboat, and HSE diving capabilities as appropriate to the requirements of each project.


Filming at sea

From planning & logistics to coordinating action on the water, we can provide fully serviced filming support for shoot days at sea, to include crew transfer, camera/support boat, and medevac capabilities.

If you have a project or event that requires marine support, please get in touch to discuss your requirements.
